Latin America and Caribbean Region - Nicaragua and Honduras Corazon Transboundary Biosphere Reserve Project (English)

The Nicaragua and Honduras Corazon Transboundary Biosphere Reserve Project for Latin America and Caribbean Region improves the national and bi-national management of the area of the proposed Corazon Transboundary Biosphere Reserve (CTBR), respecting the rights of traditional populations. The project has six components: Component 1 supports the creation and consolidation of the coordination mechanisms for the Corazon Transboundary Biosphere Reserve. This component also seeks to consolidate indigenous land rights. Component 2 strengthens the National Protected Areas Systems. In Honduras, the effective day-to-day management of individual protected areas is to fall under the responsibility of the Honduran Protected Areas Fund, which the project will support. In Nicaragua, the project will similarly support the creation and strengthening of sustainable financing mechanisms for protected areas. Component 3 implements protected area management plans. Component 4 supports community-based natural resource management. It mainstreams biodiversity conservation into productive activities. Component 5 strengthens monitoring and information management and supports research programs, and investments for informal and formal environmental education. Component 6 finances the project's administration.
